The only problem we have had so far with the Smart Car is that everywhere we go we draw a crowd of folks who have questions or comments. Some of the comments are from the uneducated who think they are death traps. Most are from people with big smiles who just think they are cute. So far we are very pleased with our decision to buy the Smart for our "enclosed" tow vehicle. We have even found that it's possible, although not too legal, to allow a third passenger to ride in the "trunk". Our 26 year old daughter is visiting and she's been riding in there with a big smile and no complaints. But she is still young and flexable....LOL

Ford Escape with manual transmission, 4 cylinder. No mods required (other than tow bar). Towed 4 down. No issues in 3 years of multi criss-cross country travel.

In same process

Currently in the same process. We have reduced the choice to a Honda Fit or Ford Fiesta, both easy 4 down. Have driven both, the wife may want a second drive of the Fit, but right now leaning toward the Fiesta. Both are fun drives.

We love the Fit. Really like the storage when you put the seats down. They go down flat and you have tons of room.

I'm 6'10" and I'll bet I have more head and leg room in my Smart than Loafer has in his Jeep. In fact I know it's a fact.

Jump here Smarty's.

Here's another that includes the Smart but look what else goes with it. http://content.usatoday.com/communit...surprise-you/1

Actually if you keep looking, all cars are terrible.

We towed two different Subarus for 11 years before going to the Edge. Loved them both. Just plug & play. No routines to go through, no restrictions - just hook, set the key, and go. So why did we change? Subarus a manual only for four down towing and there are no pumps, driveline disconnects or anything I was ever aware of to change that.
